Concours d'Elegance moves to San Mateo

The Palo Alto Lions Club will hold its 47th annual Concours d'Elegance auto show Sunday, June 30, at the San Mateo County Event Center, instead of Stanford University's athletic field, where it has been held for the past 38 years.

The exhibition of rare, vintage and special-interest automobiles will give car owners a chance to have their prized vehicles showcased and judged by the Sports Car Club of America.

This year's event highlights Cadillac and Ferrari models. There will be free car tours led by docents from the Blackhawk Museum, new car dealer exhibits, and school auto shop car projects. Food, beverages and entertainment will be part of the 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. exhibition.

Each year the Concours hosts a dinner and charity drive to benefit local charities. This year's beneficiary is the Jean Weingarten Peninsula Oral School for the Deaf in Redwood City.

General admission to the Concours is $25 in advance, $30 at the gate, and free for children under 16 accompanied by an adult. The San Mateo County Event Center is at 2495 S. Delaware St. in San Mateo.
